2019

In 2019, World of Water returned to do six school workshops and as the theme of the Fair was Air, we arranged a big clue hunt with clues ranging from the weight of rain clouds, the watery origins of crude oil and the harvesting of green crude for air travel.

2020 onwards

Spring Greens Fair is now “under the encouragement and care of Edward & Emma Bulmer & family ” and WoW introduces Waterman Talkabouts for your School days.
